Well what can I say, first I’m plagued by extreme allergic reaction to having been in contact with a cat and then my brothers came into town. Yes one of them lives in town and another works in town, but two of them live out of town and in other parts of the state so when they come into town it is always a time for family fun and a family gathering. When we are together we have fun and we tend to eat all of the things not so healthy for us but seeing that we only get together once or twice a year, it is worth it for the short time to just enjoy life and what we do without feeling guilty.
So I was really wiped out by my cat allergies on day 18 and 19 and days 20 and 21 I gave up even trying because I was going to relax and enjoy my time with my family.
In light of just losing a dear friend to cancer, it has reminded us that we need to cherish all of our time together because we are not getting any younger and we all are family and one part of the family’s loss is a loss for the entire family. So when my sister-in-law lost her mother our whole family mourned for her so seeing her this weekend lifted her spirits as well as our own and so anything we did was worth it.
So as I stated I’m going to start Monday as do over days. That will include the days I was wiped out by the cat allergic attacks and my family being in. I’m hoping to achieve the goal of being under 200 pounds and to help myself reach that goal, I’m planning on doing more exercising and maybe I can do some of that tonight once things calm down at work. So I’m determined to get back to doing what is good for my body despite the little detour this past week and I know that I will succeed so I guess I will start Monday and count that as day 18. I just hope that I haven’t eaten too poorly the last few days to pack on the pounds. Either way I am determined to lose the weight because I’ve already lost my mind which is evident by my letting myself get so obese. So although I may be still crazy time for me to do the sane thing and get back on a routine to lose weight.
Sometimes it is when we stray that will make or break us in the world of dieting. I’m not afraid to say that this is a hiccup and just excuse myself and get back to doing what I need to do to lose weight. So don’t give up on me or on yourself if you’re trying to lose weight too.
So I’ll catch you tomorrow because right now work is getting busy and I need to focus on what pays my bills. Be good to yourself and have a wonderful evening. I know I will because I’m well enough to be back at work and working is definitely better than being out of a job. Having been out of a job for 2 years really brings that back into focus. So …. “I owe, I owe…it’s off to work I go…” (to be sung to Hi ho, hi ho Seven Dwarfs’ song). However, technically since I’m debt free I don’t really owe but I want to go on vacation this year so I need money for fun times. Find something good about the things you have to do and then they may not seem so bad. I work to earn money for vacation.
